    DNSSEC Settings on ASUS RT-AC87U (Merlin 384.13_10)

    Let me give you my honest opinion - you are NOT being helpful one bit. If you have nothing much to contribute here, just stop flooding my thread with useless info as it's wasting my time to respond. No more response from me for your *snarky* comments! Good bye!

    DNSSEC Settings on ASUS RT-AC87U (Merlin 384.13_10)

    Wow, instead of just saying whether the settings are correct, you have to be snarky and post the search results. I did search it before posting this thread as there are lots of conflicting info on these threads. And, since my firmware is not up-to-date with other routers (Merlin dropped support...

    Thanks and yes, I enabled DNSFilter as well.

    DNSSEC Settings on ASUS RT-AC87U (Merlin 384.13_10)

    Well, merlin dropped support on RT87U and whatever I have is the latest and greatest. I have flashed the fork version of Merlin and has some updated packages by @Zulgrib. I searched and couldn't find anything useful and hence this thread!

    No one has inputs on my settings?

    Beta [Fork] 384.13 builds

    I see these messages a lot... Any ideas what it's complaining about?

    Beta [Fork] 384.13 builds

    To me, AC87U works very well with this build. I tried DD-WRT and the stock firmware and ended up with this fork. DD-WRT has 5 GHz issues as Quantenna (for 5 GHz) is closed source and we can't even set the mode, channel, etc. So, no go for me! I had buffering issues on Bloomberg TV on the...

    Beta [Fork] 384.13 builds

    I know for sure that the fork has an updated dnsmasq that solve dnssec vulnerability, which is critical. Apart from that, I believe there are updates to few other packages and the OP can give you more details...

    Thanks. In fact, after I posted that message, I did a power cycle and don't see that message anymore.

    Beta [Fork] 384.13 builds

    Thank you for the build and appreciate the effort. I just flashed this (RT-AC87U_384.13_202106) and when I look at the log, I see lots of this... Any ideas?

    DNSSEC Settings on ASUS RT-AC87U (Merlin 384.13_10)

    I am setting up DNSSEC on Merlin RT-AC87U_384.13_10 and please let me know if I missed something or need to tweak something else? TIA. I chose Google DNS as they seemed to resolve teeny weeny quicker (or maybe not?) than Quad9 or Cloudflare. I thought of going with two services for Preset...

    Release RT-AC68U Firmware version 3.0.0.4.386.43129

    Wow, what an epic fail from the ASUS QA team that they don't even test it on an existing firmware to see whether they can even upgrade it! Unbelievable! I could only upgrade it using the rescue method. Like you said, most of the home users are never going to bother taking the rescue method...

    Does AiProtection really work?

    It looks like only malicious site blocking is showing lots of activity. If you have the browser extension to block ads (Malwarebytes, for instance), I think you wouldn't see anything?
